Mall of America




Mall of America: An open call, user sourced, toll free audio exhibition curated by Elizabeth Lamb, presented by PLACE Gallery PDX.

Submissions will be accepted October 20 - November 25, 2012, as the show will accumulate through its duration.

Mall of America is an exhibition that asks how user sourced audio can position a dialogue around the intersection of commerce and community. Using Bloomington, Minnesotaâs famous megamall as its title, this audio exhibition will explore definitions of mall as meeting place, as establishment, and as homage to 1990's ideals, against the backdrop of our current social and economic state.

Visitors will experience the exhibition by dialing a toll free phone line, on display at PLACE Gallery, Portland, Oregon. On the receiving end, an artist directory will guide the caller through the listening experience. Exhibition content will be made available to visitors from the phone line 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the run of the exhibition. Callers will be invited to contribute recordings to the voicemail messaging system. Visitors are encouraged to call back regularly to hear new work, as content will accumulate over the course of the show.

How to Submit
Artists are invited to submit audio content using the exhibitions voicemail messaging system. Only submissions under 30 minutes in length and of continuous sound will be accepted. At the tone, artists are asked to say and spell their name before leaving the audio recording, for listing on the exhibition website and on printed gallery materials.

Original, found, and appropriated audio for Mall of America may engage field recordings to locate representational space in a physical reality. They may employ repetitive frequencies to transform the listening experience. They may weave an edited pastiche of analogue and digital media to investigate boundaries between public and corporate culture.

Mall of America is an open call exhibition curated by Elizabeth Lamb, an independent curator based out of Brooklyn, New York. Selected submissions will be added to the call directory, in the order they are received, as the exhibition progresses. Please contact elizabeth.ann.lamb at gmail.com with any questions.
